In brief: Full work up

You need to have a comprehensive evaluation and work up to determine what is causing your bite and/or jaw problem(s).
If stress is the reason you are wearing a splint or bite plate, you will need to have that addressed. If your teeth and/or jaws are not properly aligned you may need orthognathic surgery.
